Religion and Utopia in American Literature

Recent scholarship excavates the politics of religions in American literature but has largely left untreated the utopian quality of religion. In many literary texts, religion provides bases for imagining new social relations. Reading religion as utopian invites us to look anew at the multivalent relations between religion and politics in American literature.

Re-visioning Frankenstein: Illustrative, Pictorial, and Digital Adaptations

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 1:43pm
NASSR (North American Society for the Study of Romanticism)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 10, 2020

This panel will address illustrative, pictorial, and digital treatments and adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The novel has a 195-year history of illustration and depiction in a wide range of visual arts, media, and technologies—from the 1823 cover of Richard Brinsley Peake’s play Presumption to the first issue of the comic series Mary Shelley, Monster Hunter (February 2019). The novel’s “hyperadaptability” in visual form, to adopt Dennis Perry’s term, extends to a wide range of modes.

British Women Writers Conference 2020: Supernatural Visions

updated:

Indu Ohri / British Women Writers Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 7, 2019

Seeking paper abstracts for the panel “Supernatural Visions” at the British Women Writers (BWWC) Conference in Forth Worth, Texas, from March 5-7, 2020. The panel organizer invites submissions that analyze works by eighteenth and nineteenth-century women writers that explore ghost-seeing, supernatural visions, and the invisible. In recent years, scholars such as Shane McCorristine, Srdjan Smajic, and Sarah Willburn have explored the significance of ghost-seeing in England during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Washington Irving and the Theater (ALA 2020)

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 7:06am
The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for a panel connecting Washington Irving and his contemporaries to the theater. As a native New Yorker, Irving was a lifelong theater goer and even aspired to become a playwright while living abroad. His relationship with playwright John Howard Payne and Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, in fact, developed during this time in England when he attempted to write for the theater. As we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), stage performances of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” are welcomed, but we open the panel to stage productions of Irving and his other writing, too.

 

Washington Irving and Film (ALA 2020)

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 7:06am
The Washington Irving Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Washington Irving Society invites proposals for any topic related to film adaptations of Irving’s biography and texts. Because we continue to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Sketch Book (1819-1820), dramatizations of stories from the collection, such as “Rip Van Winkle,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” and the Christmas stories, are welcomed, but we open the panel to analyses of other texts and representations of Irving as well. From Joseph Jefferson (1829-1905) as Rip Van Winkle on the silent screen to Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow (1999) and the more recent television show “Sleepy Hollow” (2013-2017), interpretations of Irving vary dramatically, and we hope to explore what has entertained audiences for more than a century.

In college-level American literature anthologies, Louisa May Alcott enjoys an eclectic reputation. Her writings may appear in context with those of other Civil War or Realist writers or be catalogued as Transcendentalist works. Alternately, they can be regarded as Local Color or Regional writings, or considered in connection with the Gothic or with American Romanticism.
